Windows XP PC will not connect to the internet.

Okay i am trying to help a friend fix her computer though she has no clue where the original CD's with the drivers/ETC on them are. It is saying its connected to the internet through a 1394 net adapter,, which is a firewire. Now i have reviewed the specs of the borad she has (DFI Infinity NF Ultra II m2/g) and i cannot find the ethernet adapter drivers for this board. So i looked up the cared that is supposed to be the one integreated into it (Integrated Marvell 88E1115 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet) and marvell doesnt even have this on their site. It will not bring up web pages on Firefox, IE, nor Google Chrome. Could anyone possibly help with this problem? I have tried Netsh winsock reset but it didnt fix this problem.
